Wasilla – ein weiteres Seldwyla

The mayor quickly fired the town’s museum director, John Cooper. Later, she sent an aide to the museum to talk to the three remaining employees. “He told us they only wanted two,” recalled Esther West, one of the three, “and we had to pick who was going to be laid off.” The three quit as one.

Ms. Palin cited budget difficulties for the museum cuts. Mr. Cooper thought differently, saying the museum had become a microcosm of class and cultural conflicts in town. “It represented that the town was becoming more progressive, and they didn’t want that,” he said.

Solche Kapriolen kommen mir irgendwie bekannt vor … Gibt’s auch in der Schweiz.

Abgesehen davon ist der Artikel der renommierten New York Times äusserst lesenswert. Wenn selbst diese Zeitung die Palins Hemdsärmligkeit auf die Titelseite pappt, muss was dran sein an der Kritik.
